The hacker group Anonymous has released a video where they condemn the attack on Charlie Hebdo. They are launching it as "a message to al-Qaeda, the Islamic State and other terrorists."
In the clip we see a masked figure, whose voice is distorted.
- We declare war against you terrorists, the person says.
He / she adds that the group will track down and close all social media accounts that can be linked to terrorists, to avenge those killed in the attack.
The video also comes with an announcement on pastebin called "a message to all enemies of freedom of expression." Here the hacker group also gives its condolences to "the families of those affected by this cowardly and heinous act."
It is not long ago Anonymous last was in the news. In November they took control over the Twitter account belonging to the organization Ku Klux Klan (KKK).
KKK came with threats of violence against the demonstrators who took to the streets of Ferguson in the United States.
Anonymous announced after the threats that they would take action against the KKK, who mocked the threats a day in advance. "We continue to read Anonymous' threats with pleasure. Still no action, "the group wrote on Sunday November 16th.
Two hours later the hacker group had taken over their Twitter account. There they told as follows on KKK's own account: "You should have expected us."
